Frozen Skies is an asymmetrical triangular shawl in elongated and slightly curved shape. It is worked on the bias sideways. The overall shape and stepped edge is achieved by working the simultaneous decreases at one side of the knitted fabric and a set of knitted cast-on stitches at the other side gradually reducing the number of stitches to form a triangle.
The shawl can also be knit at a different gauge depending on what effect you would like to achieve.
